Random Encounters in Tainan City

Tainan City, located in the south-western part of Taiwan, it is the oldest and 5th largest city of this island nation.
Here are a few interesting things I encountered during my visit.


Large billboards advertising food.


A restaurant specializing in duck dishes, I assume.


Water filling stations?


Unique seats placed on the sidewalk.


Here is a close-up. I think they are really cute!


Alley way graffiti?

I tell you one thing. You were not in Oklahoma.

I love peeks into how other people live.

Neat sights. I can't decide if I like the robots in the water station or the Hello Kittyish chairs better. ^.^

LOL - love the seats and the graffiti, and heck even the duck is wonderful. Great shots of everyday things. Thanks for the different point of view.

The statues are fun and I find Taiwan intriging.

The food signs are bigger than the shops! I wonder who put the seats up - do you think it was someone doing it privately or the local council? If the latter, then I can imagine the discussion in committee about which seats to get! The robot water filling stations were just mental.
Altogether a fascinating bunch of photos.

I find Taiwan fascinating and there are fun things to discover everyday when I was there. I would like to go back.
